For the O2Micro bridges, valid values for irq_mode (not documented
yet, unfortunately) are 0, 1, 2, 3, 0x80, 0x81, 0x82, and 0x83.  Try
these, and see if you can get it to stop reporting that the PCI irq
test failed.

None Tried irq_mode=3 and got it to stop complaining about IRQ9 but still not OK

Re: None Try some other irq_mode values (David Hinds)

Used irg_mode=3 (for the O2 Micro) now it does not complain about IRQ 9

It still get the card to be busy after reboot, ejecting/inserting a couple of times get it to work OK

But I get cs: socket time out which I think is form the Card ifconfig show it configured OK ( I have tried both fixed and using the dhcpcd)

Am I now on a network config problem? I am using the laptop on the same network with windows and the Psion GoldCard successfully.

If I try to restart the network I get time-out from the dhcpcd if used, otherwise timeout later from a ping I have tested a friends laptop which has a Texas Instrument PCMCIA controller and a 16 bit Xircom on the same network which works fine with the same kernel. He was not too happy to let me install the Psion in his system but maybe I will try that later. I borrowed his Xircom Ethernet 10/100 + Modem 56 and installed in my laptop and I get the same type of time-out. This is not what I want to run but to me it looks like I still have problems with the O2 Micro?

None Several issues

From: David Hinds <dhinds@pcmcia.sourceforge.org>

Ok, there are several problems here.  I didn't make the epic_cb
connection at first.  The epic_cb driver is broken in the 3.1.19
driver package; get the latest beta from projects.sourceforge.net in
/pub/pcmcia-cs/NEW and that should work better.

Was 0x03 the only irq_mode that did not give a failed PCI irq test?

If you have a line in /etc/modules.conf that mentions this cs89x0
driver, remove it.

Ok Ethernet working using 3.1.20 release, still some minor problems

Re: None Several issues (David Hinds)
Date: 2000, Aug 17
From: Jan Calmered <jan.calmered@sbs.siemens.se>

Thanks for your help Yes, the irq_mode=3 was the only one working, tried all you suggested. Also removed the mention of cs89x0 in conf.modules, no complaints about autoprobing now

Downloaded the pcmcia release 3.1.20 from 11th of August and installed, got the ehternet to work OK, the problem remaining is that I still get the card to be busy after a reboot, removing the card, stopping pcmcia services, restarting pcmcia services, inserting card usually gets it to work OK but once the card is working I seem to have good performance and no other issues.

Regards Jan

Try some other irq_mode values
